SOUTHAVEN, MS (WMC) - Investigators are looking into the death of a man in Southaven, Mississippi, that happened Saturday.

The man has been identified by family as 30-year-old Troy Goode.

Friends said they knew the victim through a fan page of the band 'Widespread Panic.' The band played at the Snowden Grove Amphitheater Saturday night.

According to the family attorney Tim Edwards, Goode left the concert in a car with his wife when he began acting erratically. Police arrived and took Goode into custody.

Edwards said Goode's wife claims the police were very aggressive when they arrested her husband. She even said the officers tied Goode up.

Investigators said Goode suddenly stopped breathing. He was taken to the hospital where he later died. His body is headed to the crime lab in Jackson, Mississippi, for further investigation.

DeSoto County Coroner Jeffery Pounders said an autopsy will be performed to determine why Goode stopped breathing.

Goode is survived by his wife and infant child. If you want to donate to the family, click here.
